After years of planning, negotiation and fabrication, West Seattle artist Lezlie Jane’s playful, see-through sculpture “Luna Girls” is now up, just north of Salty’s on Alki on Harbor Avenue Southwest.

Installation was completed at noon Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, and Lezlie is elated. The overcast/misty winter weather only accentuated the graceful lines of this bathing trio.
Lezlie describes the subjects on her website: “three charming young ladies, in 1920s beach attire, perch elegantly on life-rings, welcoming visitors to Seacrest Park and the waterfront Alki Trail in Seattle.” They each have names (from left) Emily, Gunvor Katja and Lorna
The Southwest Seattle Historical Society provided early backing for this fun sculpture, which is historical and contemporary all at once. For more information on Lezlie and the “Luna Girls,” see her website.
